WASHINGTON, Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Ex-Im Bank Chairman and President Fred P. Hochberg issued the following statement with respect to July's record-high export data released today by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) of the U.S. Commerce Department. According to BEA, the United States exported $198.0 billion of goods and services in July 2014, the highest mark for any month ever recorded.
"These record-high numbers show that exports stamped 'Made in America' are sought out for their quality, reliability, and innovation," said Ex-Im Bank Chairman and President Fred P. Hochberg. "Given a level playing field, U.S. exporters can compete with anyone in the world, and Ex-Im Bank is proud to support American exports, just as they support jobs here at home."
Exports of goods and services over the last twelve months totaled $2.3 trillion, which is 46.6 percent above the level of exports in 2009, and have been growing at an annualized rate of 8.7 percent when compared to 2009.
